    Default can't save null db passwd in repository

    I have a transformation built that validates fine, and the database connection test is ok as well. I can connect to the database that my transformation is supposed to update, browse records, etc.

    My root password for this database is null. When I save the transformation to the repository it defaults some kind of password (I can see the line of ******). When I test the connection from the repository, it fails and says access denied, invalid password for user root. I can change it on-line to be null, then re-test the connection and it succeeds. As soon as I save it again, it reverts to the line of ****** and then causes the database connection (and the transformation) to fail.

    Interesting ... that your "root" password is empty and that you use root to extract data... short term give it a password. Longer term if you want to, raise a tracker at
